World 2018 43 Rumor Redux - April 22-28 31712202 Boston strong Boston+strong World

Manchester City are rarely out of the news when it comes to transfer tittle-tattle and this week is no exception. Anyone who witnessed the second half of Sunday’s 3-1 defeat by Tottenham would realize that the team doesn’t look good enough to threaten Manchester United next season. And with Chelsea and Tottenham looking stronger who knows where they’ll finish in the table in 2013-14. What we do know is that Roberto Mancini, if he is in charge, has plenty of targets in mind. Sadly, this week’s edition of Rumor Redux takes a somber turn in the light of last week’s events in Boston, and with that in mind there is only one band we could have picked to help us. Ten tracks by Boston are in this week’s mix.

World 2018 43 Rumor Redux - April 22-28 31711258 Luis Suarez Luis+Suarez World

RUMOR: LEAVING LIVERPOOL
LIKELIHOOD: No, no, no


Liverpool are getting used to bad news when it comes to Luis Suarez. We had the eight-game ban for racially abusing Patrice Evra, the diving scandal and now we have Hannibal-gate. The Uruguayan flesh-eater, who has been nominated for player of the year, just can’t help himself. Is he worth the trouble and will the Reds offload him? Be serious, please. If the offender had been Joey Barton, then make no mistake the fluent Franglais speaker would have been dispatched within minutes. Liverpool’s managing director Ian Ayre was quick to point out that although Suarez’s discipline isn’t the best he is “a very important player to the club”.

World 2018 43 Rumor Redux - April 22-28 31711259 Robert Lewandowski Robert+Lewandowski World

RUMOR: BORUSSIA DORTMUND TO MANCHESTER UNITED
LIKELIHOOD: Bayern are favorites


Sir Alex Ferguson was asked about the possibility of signing the Polish striker last week and the United boss gave some revealing answers. Firstly, he said any move depended on whether United win the Premier League title. That one is in the bag, so what are the stumbling blocks? Firstly he says he has enough problems trying to squeeze Van Persie, Rooney, Hernandez and Welbeck into his starting XI. Secondly he thinks Bayern “are strong with that too.” We have more than a feeling that the Bundesliga champions hold the aces on this score and that Lewandowski would only consider a move to Old Trafford if one of their big players left.

World 2018 43 Rumor Redux - April 22-28 31711261 Edinson Cavani Edinson+Cavani World

RUMOR: NAPOLI TO MANCHESTER CITY
LIKELIHOOD: Shrouded in mystery


If Falcao is heading to Real Madrid, and Robert Lewandowski is joining Bayern Munich that leaves just one more mystery to solve. Edinson Cavani. Chelsea have long been linked with the striker, but now we hear that Manchester City are willing to make him the highest-paid player in the Premier League - apparently. His mum has been saying that he wants to leave Napoli in a radio interview in Uruguay, but gave no clues as to the journey he will be taking. City, Chelsea and Real Madrid remain the favorites but that’s all we can say for now.

World 2018 43 Rumor Redux - April 22-28 31711264 Kevin Davies Kevin+Davies World

RUMOR: BOLTON TO TORONTO
LIKELIHOOD: Distinct possibility


While this rumor will barely cause a ripple in the world of big-money transfers this would be a major coup for Toronto, who already have a few English players on their books like Rob Ernshaw, Richard Eckersley and Hogan Ephraim. Davies doesn’t have pace but there’s no-one better at getting on the end of the cross either with his feet or head. Coach Ryan Nelsen is looking for someone to play off Earnshaw and an unnamed source says that the 36-year-old forward is that man. Houston made him an offer in 2012 but now it looks like he’s joining MLS.

World 2018 43 Rumor Redux - April 22-28 31711260 Radamel Falcao Radamel+Falcao World

RUMOR: ATLETICO TO CHELSEA
LIKELIHOOD: Looking increasingly unlikely


It’s hard enough trying to persuade one of the world’s best players to join your club, but when you have a pregnant partner to contend with, then you may as well give up. The Blues have long been linked with Falcao, but the formidable Atletico striker’s girlfriend, Lorelei Taron, says that her baby will be “born in Spain”. And it gets worse. She adds: “We are not moving. Madrid is a city that I am in love with and Radamel is very happy here”. It’s easy to make the assumption that his next move will be to Real Madrid, but we’d be fools to think otherwise.

World 2018 43 Rumor Redux - April 22-28 31712237 Andre Schurrle Andre+Schurrle World

RUMOR: BAYER LEVERKUSEN TO CHELSEA
LIKELIHOOD: Good chance


It’s nice once in a while to be able to say that a rumor has a pretty good chance of happening. We’re ready to stick our necks out on this one and say that 22-year-old forward Schurrle is likely to join Chelsea during the transfer window. Bayer Leverkusen’s sporting director Rudi Voller has confirmed talks have taken place in London and although we accept that doesn’t mean the deal will go through we think this one is on green for go.

World 2018 43 Rumor Redux - April 22-28 31711257 Gareth Bale Gareth+Bale World

RUMOR: TOTTENHAM TO MANCHESTER CITY
LIKELIHOOD: Don’t rule out Bayern


One thing’s for certain in the view of the Rumor Redux elders. Tottenham needs a top-four finish and a place in next season’s Champions League if they are to hang on to their prize asset. Don’t believe us? These are the words of Spurs player Gylfi Sigurdsson said finishing in the top four “will attract more good players and hopefully keep other good players around.” The meaning is clear and there will be a fairly long queue for Bale's services (just imagine the transfer fee). Manchester City (who else?) have been linked with a move for a player that has been smokin’ this season but we think he might fancy a move abroad, at Real Madrid or even a spell under Pep Guardiola at Bayern.

World 2018 43 Rumor Redux - April 22-28 31711265 Kyriakos Papadopoulos Kyriakos+Papadopoulos World

RUMOR: SCHALKE TO MANCHESTER CITY
LIKELIHOOD: Would add muscle at the back


Anyone who saw City capitulate to Tottenham on Sunday would be forgiven for thinking that they don’t actually have a defense. Vincent Kompany looks a shadow of the player that was a rock at the back in the championship-winning season, while Joleon Lescott seems to have a shaky future. The one plus has been the form of Matija Nastasic, who looks to be an experienced professional at the tender age of 21. It is thought the two clubs have already agreed a fee for the defender, who has a £17million buy-out clause. Mancini needs peace of mind at the back, but we’re not so sure the Greek will join City as there are other clubs interested, namely United and AC Milan.

World 2018 43 Rumor Redux - April 22-28 31711262 Roberto Mancini Roberto+Mancini World

RUMOR: LEAVING MANCHESTER CITY
LIKELIHOOD: Future isn’t guaranteed


All seemed rosy in the City garden when they beat their Manchester rivals at Old Trafford and then booked their place in the FA Cup final with a 2-1 victory against Chelsea at Wembley. They then eked out a 1-0 home win against relegation-threatened Wigan before capitulating against Tottenham on Sunday. Mancini questioned the players’ attitude after the 3-1 defeat, but questions about his future will not go away. Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone and PSG coach Carlo Ancelotti have both been linked with the position. City’s easy run-in means they should finish runner-up to United but anything lower than second will lead Mancini to a new world called unemployment.

World 2018 43 Rumor Redux - April 22-28 31711263 Julio Cesar Julio+Cesar World

RUMOR: QPR TO ARSENAL
LIKELIHOOD: Which goalkeeper isn’t going to Arsenal?


Only a higher power can tell us which goalkeeper Arsene Wenger will sign this summer. Here’s a non-exhaustive list. Rui Patricio (Sporting Lisbon), Michel Vorm (Swansea), Victor Valdes (Barcelona), Pepe Reina (Liverpool), Rene Adler (Hamburg). It just goes on and on, but we have a new name to add to that list, QPR’s Julio Cesar, who is keen to stay in the Premier League with a London club. The R's are almost certain to be relegated to the Championship in the week or so which means Cesar will be looking for another club. Wenger seems to have lost faith in Szczesny so you can see how the rumor started. We have to be honest and say we don’t have a Scooby-doo (London speak for don’t have a clue).
